Exhibits featured antique, contest, challenge, and contemporary quilts. The extensive  merchants mall with its colorful array of products bustled with shoppers. Throughout the weekend, free gallery talks, lectures, and appraisals offered insight into quilts and quilting techniques. Over seventy classes gave an even more comprehensive study
